, natural places to go for performance. so, the money managers will buy bank of america and wells fargo and u.s. bancorp endlessly on any dip over and over again. that's why i bought them for my charitable trust. i knew they had to come in. they could take all they wanted and they're doing. it oil and natural gas down last week. what i chance to get in. even though the earnings were widely lambasted. you see, they had no choice. the big-shot money managers simply cannot catch a double-digit move from the sidelines. they can no longer hope that the market will come down because it's up too darn much. and most of them don't have the luxury of being up so much that they can leave the table. they're being forced back to the table where they have to place bets whenever any discount whatsoever occurs. and they know where they won't move the stocks with their aggressive buying. think back to bank of america, think wells fargo. oh, that's selling? they've got to hone every share they have. they can't afford to sell anything, they'll lose their exposure. they have too much buying to do here's th

, especially when four of the five top-selling cars, though mostly assembled in america, are japanese. what does the white house have to say about all those hondas and toyotas? >> that the big three are doing well enough, accounting for 43% of sales. many honda and toyota vehicles are manufactured in the united states. but once upon a time there was language in the cash for clunkers legislation that would have barred any discounts for cars manufactured outside of the united states, meaning employing no u.s. workers or cars made in canada or mexico. the white house approval of that language was' moved because it would have00 head-long into free trade agreements and stopping the program cold. but the white house says this about overall domestic auto production and sales -- >> the statistics denote that the big three automakers have been represented well in this program because they're building cars that americans want to buy. >> and for that reason the white house wants the program to continue. shepard: so e.r.a. reid says the senate will vote this week. are republicans trying to stop it? >>

daughter had achieved. what a great story it is for america. and what a great story it is that president obama would give us a chance to consider judge sotomayor to serve as the first hispanic woman on the united states supreme court. for many who oppose judge sotomayor, her life achievements and her judicial record are just not good enough. after pouring over 3,000 court decisions and hundreds of her speeches, judge sotomayor's critics focus their opposition primarily, not exclusively, but primarily on one case, the rich ricci and one sentence from one speech. i hope someone was keeping track how many times those three words, wise latina woman, were quoted during the course of this hearing. senator after senator asked her what did you really, really, really mean with those three words? over and over and over again. we are senators who live in a world of decisions and votes everyday. and we understand when our decisions and votes are questioned and challenged often in a an unfair fashion. if we vote in a way that's controversial we ask that people be fair and judge us on our life's work,

. countdown and ignition and before the real liftoff has begun. what if america is stronger than the doubters would have us believe? more innovators, more adaptable than even president obama believes we are. michael darta is a believer, he put out a note today saying the new ism manufacturing numbers that came in and lifted the markets, they promise the economy will grow better than 3% next year, that would be half gain higher than wall street expects. 3% growth in gdp would be more than $400 billion in extra economic activity next year, and the stock market is is the ultimate leading indicator. today surged up past that 1,000 mark closing at 1,002 and change. the nasdaq cracked the 2,000 mark jumping 30 points to 2008. and the dow jones fired off another nice triple digit gain up 115 points or so to close up near 9,300. dow 10,000? here we come. now a couple of recovery killers loom. factors that could render us tax americana. and they boil down to this. obama-care, obama tax increases, obama anti-capitalist rage.. but for now, this summer rally is for real. what happened today?y? what does
and because of how inconceivable it is that america would no longer have the national capacity to make cars. so first goal, stimulus. second goal help the car industry. third goal? reduce the amount of gas that we guz l and the emissions we pollute our own country with by helping americans switch to cleaner, more efficient, newer cars. all of these interrelated goals, these three, are the thinking behind cash for clunkers. you trade in your old car that doesn't get great mileage and because of all those goals, stimulus, helping the car industry, and cleaning up the joint, the government gives you in exchange for your clunker a big, fat 35 or $4500 check toward buying or leasing a new car. a simple program. a totally cogent policy idea. the only question was, would it work? would americans take advantage of it? the answer to that question is a technical policy term which is oh, boy doggie did it work. the program only made it about a week before it ran out of money because so many people took advantage of it. by saturday more than 85,000 car transactions had already been registered with deal

, countrywide was sold to bank of america. the ability we had to affect countrywide in that time was very limited. >> i have another question. this relates to the point mr. bowman just made. as you said, 54 of the 69 banks that failed this year are state- chartered banks. i guess it is a historical anomaly why the fed supervises state chartered banks and mr. dugan supervises federally chartered banks -- when i first get to the banking committee in 1981, i didn't understand it. it just happened. let me ask mr. tarullo , most of the failed banks were not regulated by the supervisor or by ots. explain to me and this bair can answer as well. explain to me why the fdic and the fed should keep state- chartered supervision, particularly if we're giving the fed more responsibilities and other areas. if you think those functions should be kept apart, from the proposed national bank supervisor, why shouldn't at the very least merge fdic and the fed supervision of this state chartered bank? >> can i ask the panel to try to answer quickly? >> i will ask unanimous consent that each panelist be asked t

. >> the first guy you saw was a first responder and a passenger on the plane. we spoke to him on america's newsroom moments after the flight and he described the incident as severe like nothing he had ever experienced before and when you heard him say that 100% of the people didn't have their seat belts on he meant 100% of the injured did not have their seat belts on. >> i came here to flee the region of entitlement, latin america, a system that has been proven not work. i believe we all have a right of life but no any other rights. we can work hard to become somebody and that's what attracted myself to this company. bill: that was part of the meeting a lot of concern about where congress is headed on this issue my next guest had a town hall meeting of his own alikea cummings from baltimore, the democratic congressman from maryland good morning to you. >> good morning. bill: i haven't seen a video of you being shouted down. did it go ok? >> there was no shouting. as a matter of fact there was no incidents like other town hall meetings, and that's because i had an opportunity to explain t
countries in the world, who appreciated america's role as a neighbor in the world and as someone who understand relations between our countries and why they were important. and he's incredibly popular. >> kevin, chuck todd just talked about the complexities of dealing with north korea, there's the official state media and what they have said about hillary clinton. how complicated is the diplomatic dance in bill clinton's dance, how careful he needs to be? >> he needs to be very, very careful. he needs to draw a very clear line between the case of these two journalists and the nuclear question. it's not realistic to believe what the white house is hoping for here, they would like to create a better atmosphere here. i think the white house feels it is in their best interests to have north korea come back to the table and north korea is looking for the prestige that a visit from bill clinton would be. he doesn't want to directly link these things, he doesn't want to do the things that jimmy carter did which is get involved with negotiations which should have been held between the white

believe the two vibrant political parties are necessary for a strong america. competition always leads to good ideas. when one party dominates, you tend to see arrogance and foolish policies creep in and that may already be happening to the obama administration. according to real clear politics, president obama's job approval rating is falling faster than any modern president except for bill clinton. since his inauguration the president has lost 16 points in about six months. now, that should bolster republicans. especially conservatives who don't like the president's policies. many are acting foolishly, instead of concentrating on better ideas. they are frenzied over the president's birth certificate. that kind of dumb stuff. as we discussed last week mr. obama loves that because it makes his opposition look irrational. why would he ever release his birth certificate when those demanding it look unhinged? some conservatives also personally attacked judge sotomayor. that wasn't smart. you can disagree with the woman. but to malign her character maligns the vital hispanic voting block.
the conversation to go on. there can't be any more serious conversation taking place across america than whether or not congress will indeed act, send the president a bill to reform our health care system. it affects everybody personally. it is life or death for way too many americans. and what we know is right now, we've got a system where, you know, the health insurance industry gets to pick and choose who gets health care, who gets coverage. they often stand between patients and their doctors deciding what procedure, what recommendation, what drug, what process is going to be followed. we want a reformed system where -- with the kind of consumer protections that the house and senate bills are likely to have. americans will have access to affordable health care, high-quality health care, and no longer will insurance companies get to choose who gets health care in america. >> how are you going to go forward with this kind of protest when you're trying to be heard? has the white house developed a strategy? have the congressional leaders developed a strategy for dealing with this on the road? >>
